Hello all, I was using CentOS before I met with openSuse. I really like opensuse better than centos because I had a lot of problems on centos. I host a few domains virtually. I was using Webmin + Virtualmin on CentOS but as I read that Virtualmin GPL (free) is not supported on opensuse 11. Anyway, my question is:
Is there any other free applications similar to Virtualmin for opensuse to setup virtual servers (web,mail,ftp)?
Honestly, I really don’t know of anything. CentOS is pretty much the number one OS these days for control panels. For example, WHM previously officially supported Fedora and Suse - but now they only support CentOS. I did see this discussion with one of the Virtualmin developers, and they have no plans to support Suse, though he does say that a manual install of it should work with with Webmin - though to be blunt this is really probably not something you want to tackle.
Thanks for your suggestions. I don’t know why they don’t support suse, I really believe that suse is the number one distro… it is secure (w/Novell) and it is more reliable than others. Centos seems to be simple for me, I don’t know why but I don’t feel comfortable with it.
Another thing is that the company which I work for will be switching on Suse in a few months. I need to check all the possibilities on it. I like Webmin, it works fine on suse but what if I want to add some virtual servers on it? It is very simple to do that with Virtualmin but it’s hard to set it up manually. Also, some of my clients ask for Virtualmin. I really need to have that or something similar.
Runs on CentOS and support pretty much all the popular hypervisors. I did a test cluster using this and found it to be quite good really. It is a commercial product, but the pricing was not bad at all.
If you really want to most options for control panels and VPS managements options, I am afraid CentOS just has a lot more available at this time. You could just run the VMs on CentOS and have the rest of your servers be Suse. I use them both and find each to be excellent.
